For those, who grow up in the 1980's will have some fun with this silly movie.

As a young boy, Justin (Alexander Calvert) felt down hard on the floor trying to do some fancy break dancing for a talent show at school. Twenty years has passed, Justin (Jamie Kennedy) woke up from his coma. Although he still has the mind of a twelve year old trapped in a 32 year old body. He finds out that his parents (Christopher McDonald and Debra Jo Rapp) might lose their home, after trying to pay off Justin's medical bills. He decides to get back his old dance crew (Miguel A. Nunez, Jr., Bobby Lee and Avis Alvarado) to help him win back his parents house. Justin discovers that his long time crush (Maria Menounos) is marring the bully (Michael Rosenbaum), he truly hated. But Justn hasn't realized yet that music has changed and a whole new generation of fancy foot-steppers are far superior. Since he missed two decades, it is time to grow up... a little. Directed by Harv Glazer (Bitten) made an silly comedy that has some goofy laughs. Kennedy offers more charm that he did in "Malibu's Most Wanted". But the differences between the two, his early starring role had a much slicker look. It will certainly remind you of the film "Big" and other break dancing movies of the 1980's. The movie has a cool retro 80's soundtrack and some of the dance moves are good. "Kickin It Old Skool" is not a great comedy but it's not boring either and acting or the quality of the feature looks truly average. But it does offers some laughs and probably fans of Kennedy will enjoy this one best. Some amusing cameos as well. Super 35. (*** 1/2 out of *****).

Great movie for anyone who grew up in the 80's

i saw this movie last night at a sneak preview. i wasn't expecting a whole lot from this movie except maybe some cheesy one liners that would get a laugh. the movie actually had me laughing the whole time. the sound track is excellent! the movie has so many references to the 80's! it was great. the basis of the movie is a kid has a break dancing accident and goes into a coma for 20 years. this concept of the kid having to grow up in a hurry reminded me of movies like 13 going on 30 or Big but what separated this movie from others like it is he didn't grow up because of some wish or magic Gennie. the circumstance of him being in a coma and waking up 20 years later was much more realistic. i definitely recommend seeing this movie if you grew up in the 80's!

I actually laughed a lot

I didn't go into this movie expecting to see the 2nd coming of the Shawshank Redemption or Casablanca as far as film-making. I just wanted to see something lighthearted enough to get some cheap laughs with my family. In that sense, this movie succeeded. No, it wasn't a "good" movie by any stretch of the imagination, but I did enjoy the time I spent watching this flick. The first half hour or so stuck in some corny jokes and I was beginning to think "Uh oh... this is going to be lame." Then the movie seemed to take a turn and STOP trying to be witty. Instead it then focused on silly sight gags and cheap laughs. Yes, it was juvenile and cheap... but it was also FUNNY. I'm of the minority who finds Jamie Kennedy funny and did like his old television show. It seemed that very much of the plot and storyline borrowed from other movies, namely Big and Dodgeball. While this wasn't as funny as either of those movies it still had me laughing on many occasions. I particularly liked the individual jokes involving the roach, the date-preparation and the crude vomit scene. I've seen too many "comedy" movies that try to take themselves seriously and they get annoying. People like me who were teens in the 80s will probably like this more than the pre-teen to mid-20s audience of today. We lived most of the references, so we'll get a few more of the jokes. You really have to be a fan of silly and braindead type of comedies to enjoy this. I won't say that it's worth buying on DVD or anything, but if you want some simple laughs without worrying about any overly obscene language or scenes you might enjoy this. It won't challenge you mentally or have you raving about it to your friends, but you might enjoy turning your brain off for awhile for a few laughs. If your kids don't get embarrassed by you laughing about something they don't get, then take them along. It's actually fun explaining the references to them.
